Tending the Hermit's Garden
17 inches x 11 inches
Watercolor and graphite on paper
Signature date: 2.22.06

Ersatz hermit crabs, grown from potato eyes, are evoked in their created life cycles-youth, old age, and death-dwelling in seashells, amongst brain coral. The cyclical nature of existence, nurtured by an unseen solitary gardener, uncoils without a vanishing point.
